The P&W Sandwich Shop, known as P&W, was a sandwich place on Amsterdam between 110th St and 111th St. It sat right next door to the Hungarian Pastry Shop and was owned by the same people. The "P" and "W" stood for the owners, Panagiotis, aka Peter, and his wife, Wendy, Binioris.

On December 14, 2011, P&W announced that after 10.5 years, it would close its doors on December 24 on account of "lease termination[1][2]. It will be replaced by an Insomnia Cookies in what is only latest instance of the blandification of Morningside Heights as the University raises storefront rents.

Some of the old P&W sandwiches are still served at Hungarian, though they're not fresh-made[3].
